Tête-à-tête Thursdays: Plush Creations

Jay Z, Ashanti, Avon, and Carol’s Daughter all have one thing in common: Plush Creations. Ever went on vacay and threw your unmentionables and fine jewelry in ziplock bags? Well, look no further! I had the pleasure of interviewing Denise McMillan, owner/designer of Plush Creations.

Plush Creations is a U.S. based company that specializes in travel accessories that are too “pretty to pack.” Any item can be customized to your purty heart’s desires. The ArtBelles squealed with delight as we oohed and awed over the beautiful products Plush carries.

Marc’s Pop Lingerie Bag $95

The boutique business was created out of McMillan’s desire for travel and fabrics, and us girls who love beautiful things get to indulge in that desire. Plush Creations designs dreadfully beautiful lingerie bags, jewelry bags, shoe bags and other travel luxuries that have a unique flair. Designer fabrics include Marc Jacobs, Badgley Mischka and more.
